Health Insurance & Marketplaces

Health Insurance

Consumers need more transparent health plan cost information to drive empowered decision making. Federal and state policymakers must ensure health insurance products offered to consumers comply with all regulatory requirements.

IMPAQ Health is a leader in developing consumer transparency tools and in delivering policy and operational compliance solutions to Federal, state, and foundation clients. Our multidisciplinary team consists of health policy experts, data scientists, and clinical and pharmaceutical specialists with decades of combined experience in health insurance marketplace policy and regulatory analysis, health insurance compliance monitoring, state technical assistance and outreach, data analytics, data visualization, pharmaceutical benefit design, clinical guideline reviews, and consumer tool development. We also bring expertise in project management and process improvement, helping clients do more with fewer resources.

IMPAQ Health provides innovative solutions for the Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight, the Center for Medicare, the Center for Clinical Standards and Quality, and states and foundations. Our projects help Federal and state governments comply with ACA requirements, including health insurance marketplace implementation and health plan compliance monitoring. This includes ensuring health plan benefits are non-discriminatory and that health plan data are displayed accurately to consumers. Supported by foundations, we also help consumers with chronic conditions compare out-of-pocket costs when shopping for health insurance plans.

Recent projects include CCIIO Marketplace Operations Support, Plan Finder Data for, Quality Rating System Measure Development, Out of Pocket Cost Tool for NY Consumers Selecting Health Insurance Plans, and Monitoring Methods for Prescription Drug Plans.
